February BoxyCharm Try-On

I’m changing it up a bit over on my YouTube channel. Instead of just showing the products I got in my Boxycharm box this month, I’m also trying them out for the first time!

How Boxycharm Works:

Boxycharm is $21 per month. This price includes all the products as well as shipping charges. Inside your box you get 4 or 5 full size products and a paper describing what each product it and how much it would usually cost. All boxes are worth AT LEAST $100. Mine was definitely over that this month.

My Box this Month:

Three Crown Brushes for the Face: This is now the third month in a row we have gotten a product from Crown cosmetics. Interesting… Anyway, I do like these brushes – they are soft and seem to stand up well during washes. I especially liked the biggest of the three, which I used to contour my face with in my video.

Naked Cosmetics Holographic Highlighter Collection: If you are into crazy highlighting shades, then this is your palette. Usually, these colors of highlight are not my cup of tea (green highlighter anyone?) but I did enjoy the top row of highlighters in this palette. I guess it’s a good way to get me out of my highlighting comfort zone!

Cover FX Shimmer Veil in Amethyst: My favorite product in the box this month! This is a liquid eyeshadow similar to the Stila Magnificent Metals or ColorPop Supernova Shadows. This is color is a gorgeous light pink with purple reflects. Ah love!

Bellapiere Cosmetic Glitter in Cosmic Purple: I didn’t actuallyย  try this product out for a few different reasons. 1) I already had a glittery eyeshadow on my lids. 2) I don’t actually own any glitter glue and that is definitely needed for this product. So, I’m not sure about this product. Seems impractical since we didn’t get any glitter glue with it.

Vintage Cosmetics Smokey Eye Pencil: I was shocked at how smooth this eyeliner is – especially for a pencil! This might be my new go-to water line pencil!
